HVAC Duct Cleaning: Is It Really Worth Your Hard Earned Cash?

Home Air Filter Replacement

And yes I still use that word. And then we found out that the director is Kenny Ortega who also directed High School Musical. Not only that but we were going to get to do an exclusive, personal … [Read more...]

Peyton & Kevin group

If you had told me a few weeks ago that I would have gotten to stand next to Marvel President and Ant-Man Producer Kevin Feige I would have laughed at you. In fact, up until a couple of minutes before the interview I had no idea he was coming. We though we were just getting to interview Ant-Man Director Peyton Reed which in itself was super amazing. If you have not seen Ant-Man, it is in theaters NOW! Go see it. Take your kids. It's so kid friendly. You can check out my Ant-Man review post.

Minions Fun Dip Recipe #Minions

minion-dip-1

This is probably the cutest little dip recipe you could find for a party. I wish we could have done it for the Minions party we did last week with my son and his little friends. I think the recipe is super easy and something the kids could help with. Anything with Funfetti cake mix or sprinkles is going to be a blast and going over awesome with kids. I have a great Rainbow Cookie Recipe that uses sprinkles and my kids love it. My kids love the Minions movie and they want all the little characters especially Kevin. They adore Kevin. Even my 13 year … [Read more...]

Exclusive Interview with Ant-Man Villain Yellowjacket Corey Stoll #AntManEvent

yellowjacket-ant-man-darren-cross

I have a soft spot for most villains. I really can't help rooting for the bad guy in movies. They usually get better back stories and great cliche lines that everyone quotes for eternity. The upcoming Ant-Man movie (see it TOMORROW July 17th!) has a great villain. And he is an actor I really like so it was pretty cool to be able to interview Corey Stoll for his role as Darren Cross - Yellowjacket in Ant-Man.  Like most of the people we interviewed he immediately started playing with the toys The Rock Father had left towards the front. Darren … [Read more...]

Antorage Group

I have probably never laughed as much in a interview as I did when we interviewed Michael Peña, T.I., and David Dastmalchian for the Ant-Man movie press day. They came in laughing and we all applauded because they are awesome. They had the best expressions on their face when we did. It so funny. They called themselves the Antourage Michael Peña - Can you tell my wife to do that? You’re amazing. T.I. - I wish I had a camera of ya’ll. I mean just look at those expressions. It could be because they are in the wonderful, amazing Ant-Man movie which … [Read more...]
